percent of people without power. we can't have a situation where... >> both the president and mitt romney are having to make difficult decisions in the days ahead amidst criticism he is cutting fema mr. romney refocused campaign events to serve as relief drive. >> part of the american spirit the american way to give to people who are in need. your generosity this morning touches my heart. i appreciate what you have done. >> now the impact that any of this is going to have, this election it's tough to say. look for a moment at the mass of power outages. look how many potential swing states are affected here. new hampshire, pennsylvania, north carolina, michigan, and of course ohio. >> ohio is the big one. >> 20 minutes before the hour. these planes will not be going anywhere any time soon. at least 18,000 flights canceled as three of the nation's busiest airports shut down for sandy. that is laguardia airport in new york. it looks like a beach doesn't it? >> used to be a runway. >> a crane hanging by a thread 65 stories above a busy new york street. coming up a crane expert says it could h
saidly do them both. romney said repeatedly even when i interviewed him he doesn't want to talk about what deduct shunts he would scale back or he limb nana, eliminate because that should be done in the open with congress. it is a ridiculous position because then you say well i am not going to say anything i will do because it should all be negotiated in congress in the light of day. voters need to know what kind of deductions will he scale back and david axelrod said the same thing to me in a television interview about social security he said this is not the time to talk about social security. >> rose: on bowles-simpson they don't really lay out what they disagree with bowles-simpson. they want a gas tax, don't want a gas tax. >> they think the best thing to do, both of them not be specific and somehow they get enough of a mandate to beat the opponent. >> if you are not bold can you ever argue and have a mandate. >> i think the president will have a mandate to raise taxes on the wealthy if he wins and i think governor romney will try to get rid of obama care if he wins and that is ab
now, close obama win, close romney win or big romney win and if you talk to some republicans, both connected to the campaign and one step away from the center of the campaign they are starting to talk about the possibility and you see in the republicans movement into pennsylvania, minnesota, and perhaps michigan the possibility that they are not just trying to hedge their bets or trying to expand the map out of desperation but a real belief this thing could be bigger, an oregon polls that show the shows the race close, certainly closer than the president won four years ago i think the momentum is with romney and the obama people are not just spinning when they say, look, out of that first debate in denver he doesn't have momentum where he overwhelmed us he brought home the base be does president's in number has not chanced by any means but pretty pistol hid and that means governor romney has upward momentum or has had it, maybe that has stalled we don't really though but the president does not have bad momentum he is not collapsing in any way, i think that the momentum in this race
do you think will win and clearly governor romney has made progress both in favorable and unfavorable rating and in who do you any is going to win? the more people think the president is going to win, but depending on which poll you look at the gap narrowed dramatically, you must have that be relatively narrow in order to win and that is a sign of momentum and it takes a lot of pressure off the campaign in boston. >> rose: these things have come out of these kinds of polls, number one, who do you think will make the best leader, governor romney, had you been 2, who do you think will handle the economy better? governor romney. number 3, who do you think cares more about you? >> president obama. >> right. >> rose: must be 4 who is better in foreign policy? >> president obama. >> rose: right. >> what would you add to that? those are the basic kind of -- >> well there is a different variations of cares about people, who understands the middle class. i thought all along, governor romney on those questions, those character and trade questions, governor romney needed to do three things. on

. and governor romney's numbers don't work out either. so you've got both implying that my plan is sufficient, when in fact neither is sufficient. and that's the problem. when they translate that into governance, if they just do . exactly what they promised they're going do, we are in a real crisis. and long term, our country's got serious and unresolved problems. >> the voter out there only has a choice, therefore, betw tn two insufficient possibilities.n >> b they t know that governor romney will cut more and obama will tax more.th that's a certain inference. >> on your point, i was surprised that when paul ryan said what he did to joe biden that, you know, "we can work together." and when romney runs, romney has a new ad out sayinge can work better with congress than obama has, that somebody didn't point ut that this is an obstructionist republican ut majority in the house. >> i think that's because obama is in a trap. he has paintehimself into a corner, which makes him vulnerabin to the charge, which has been heard increasingly often, that you don't know what obama's going to do in his s
, we ha kinde of an ironic moment in which governor romney was both confirming that he would not put new revenue on the table and saying that he was going to be bipartisan and get a olution.n. you can't sit down with th democrats and say, "i'm going to be bipartisan," and not offer anything. what the republicans have to offer is revenue. and what the democrats have to offer is spending cuts. and in that grand bargain which fell apart because neither could appease their own base d effectively, they had both cuts and revenue on the table. that's where we're going to have to go for a solution. my worry is the country doesn't tnow that's what's going to happen. >> kathleen, how would your experience differ if you had watched on nbc, fox, pbs, cnn? did it make a difference which network you were watching? >> yes, the networks that held much of the debate in split screen invited you to see the debate through the reaction of the cnodidate who wasn't speaking. >> and you think that's di significant?si >> i think it's significant because it minimizes the likelihood that you're hearing what's
is important for both camps. new polls show romney closed the gap with the candidates nearly tied in a new quinnipiac poll. in the final push, the focus is entirely on the swing states and the campaign's final round of ads. vice president o biden -- presidential joe biden is in florida and paul ryan in wisconsin. the president will visit nevada, wisconsin, and colorado thursday. while the rest of the week is in flux for both campaigns, romney's scheduled to hold the final rally monday night in new hampshire. in washington, shannon breem, fox news. >>> early voters in d.c. and maryland wait in long lines to make the voices heard ahead of election day. >> and sandy could have a major impact as people try to get to the polls next tuesday. we'll tell you about the mad scramble to minimize delays. >> and it could play a pivotal role in deciding the next president. find out if the final jobs report before election day will be released on time. stay close. anncr: which do you believe? whwhat mitt romney's tv ads say about women? or what mitt romney himself says? mitt romney: do i believe the supr

will come back. and then on thursday, both romney and obama will regain, you know, they will start to campaign again. looking forward, i don't see sandy as a factor. >> no, i don't. it might have marginal effects. it does show the president is presidential. people expect that in a national emergency. that's not really stuff. you might say that if you look at where the storm is spread. it's now in ohio and virginia. these are places where the obama campaign had counted on early voting and they made a big effort on that. the president himself cashed the ballot early first time in u.s. history way to encourage others. democrats thought that might be advantageous for them. more republicans than democrats who voted early. again i think that's probably a watch -- wash. one thing it might effect things as we resume the campaign. tomorrow is going to be a half and half day by the end of the week we will be back to campaigning. when you have this emergency and you have this tragedy and latest effects of the tragedy are going to go right through election day. not a one day deal. there is imp
and mitt romney just has to keep campaigning, but both campaigns don't know how this will affect town out. the big thing to do is look at new hampshire and virginia, two states that were affected by the storm and how it could affect the town out the voters. we do not know how it will shake out or if there is a rallying behind president obama in the last few difficulties before election day. >>neil: you never know if they would extend election day it would probably be a legal hurdle so leaving that aside, a lot of folks could be without power in a lot of areas so they have to file a paper ballot if you go to the precinct and you are, this is like some of these old countries where you have a slip paper and they count it at the precinct and it could be a long election night, could it not? >>guest: it could. and you are absolutely right, provisional ballots are something we will have to watch the i point out that most affected areas are not swing states but it could affect a senate race in connecticut and we will have to wait to see what the provisional ballots do for that but in cincinnati w
to shave my mustache. >> there is evidence to back up both and the romney campaign believes momentum. our own history has shown candidates, there are challengers, and the whole thing happens and the whole thing won't move. is that what we're seeing or is this a desperate attempt to what's going on? >> chuck, look at the poll numbers. there is serious tightening in these states, the lean democratic column for quite a while right now. but it is important to note that president obama actually leads still in all of them and, in fact, the margins we're often seeing look close to what john kerry carried those states in 2004 versus 2008. but overall this is something -- this is the recognition the power the super pacs are playing. the pro-romney restore in play. other super pacs going in there and that's opened up things a little bit. the biggest question, why didn't we see these moves months ago? >> let me ask you something, are you concerned -- look, the fact of the matter is and i've done some of the math, it is possible and it's not like an out there scenario, that mitt romney could win the
both ways, i looked at the crowd, and...we all just lost our jobs. we don't have an income. mitt romney made over 100 million dollars by shutting down our plant and devastated our lives. turns out that when we built that stage, it was like building my own coffin, and it just made me sick. [ male announcer ] priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. prand you're seeing that rightto quit in amnow.a...ction over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney
for mitt romney to gain ohio? >> well, the independent votes are important to both camps, thomas. but i believe that the independents will swing the president's way. this is a choice election. a choice between a president who has been working very hard over the last four years to steady this economy or for a governor that will lie to try to get the presidency. i think independent voters understand what their choice is and that choice is president barack obama. >> ohio state senator nina turner. as always, lovely to see you. thanks for your time. >> you too, thomas. >>> six days to go and america's big decision is coming our way pretty quickly. a big question, though, looming, is pennsylvania in play. the keystone state. both the campaigns are blanketing the state with ads in an effort to grab its 20 electoral votes. many political experts say if mitt romney can flip ohio, the keystone state could be next. >> by the way, i like coal. people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. i want to get america and north america energy independent so we can create tho
two points. the ohio is ahead in both ohio and virginia in early voting. today mitt romney making multiple stops in the state of florida. yesterday he took a break from campaigning, turning a dayton, ohio rally into a relief event for storm victims on the east coast. >> i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit, the american way to give to people who are in need. and your generosity this morning touches my heart. we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning, though a lot of people will still be looking for goods even though we've gathered these things as you know, but i know that one of the things i've learned in life is that you make the difference you can and you can't always solve all the problems yourself, but you can make the difference in the life of one or two people. >> president obama focused on hurricane sandy and the damage it left, former president bill clinton picking up the slack taking on some extra campaign events on behalf of the president. today president clinton heads to iowa. but during a stop in minneapolis yeste
not enough room for romney to come back. as you well know, both sides are arguing their case for why they have certain advantages going into election day. what we know is how close it is. and so there's much that we can't know or really say at this point. >> and there's word even from some democrats in michigan that i know the obama campaign says michigan is not in play but some democrats on the ground in michigan telling us, telling me, that it is closep. a lot closer than their xlfrts zo comfort zone and pennsylvania is not perhaps in play but closer than they expected to be. the senate candidate not doing as well as expected given his registration advantage. really risks for the casey campaign with -- up against ap candidate who is from the west which is normally a casey stronghold. so there are a number of places that are a lot closer than the comfort zone for the obama team, despite their very scientifically based huge and we see now the president coming down the steps. >> in casual attire, he will be seen and the picture right there -- >> craig fugate, head of fema, and being g
? >> sreenivasan: that's correct buckets for both the romney and obama campaigns the goal is to target voters sufficiently so they divide us into groups called buckets. the mobilization bucket for strong supporters of the candidate. the opposition bucket for those voting for the other guy. no need to spend resources on them. and the persuasion buct for those valuable undecideds. and the campaigns create buckets within buckets. the more data they have, the more they can refine them. details, notes, that person tells me what their most important issue is, do i put that down? >> i would put that in the notes because we know next time when we're building an audience that, you know, joe schmo was a small business owner. you want to make sure he's a part of that audience. >> sreenivasan: the campaign collects even more data through a new organizing tool called dashboard which allows them to pinpoint not just potential voters but potential volunteers. the people in the mobilization bucket. >> this is our on-line field office and so dashboard is definitely both a social tool but also a reporting tool
, the devastating east coast storm forced both candidates off the stump today. they focused, instead, on disaster relief, with mitt romney in ohio collecting canned foods and bottled water, and the president making a quick afternoon visit to red cross headquarters in washington. >> the most important msage i have for them is that america is is with you. we are standing behind you, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get back on your feet. sa ifill: romney also spoke of the need to help storm victims.e >> i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit. the american way to give to people who are in need. and your generosity this morning touches my heart. >> ifill: the romney campaign announced he will resume campaigning tomorrow. the president will remain off the trail throughsu wednesday. dn spent most of today at the offering federal support to officials in the affected areas. among them, new jersey's republican governor chris christie, a romney supporter who nevertheless heaped praise on the president. >> i have to say thed administration, the president himself,
of this really is a very delicate act right now on both the part of the president and mitt romney? >> you know, it's very delicate, yes, but, you know, the president has to do his job. what he is doing is doing his job, which is he is going to devastated areas which one would expect, the commander in chief to do. he is deploying resources. if he didn't show up there, people would be saying where is the president? i think, a, he has a job so do and he is doing it. it is a little more difficult, of course, for mitt romney. mitt romney doesn't have a job to do. he is not the president. that's his job. he has to walk a fine line and saying, look, we have to think of you people along the eastern seaboard, and then take a turn and take a turn to politics and campaigning as the president will do when he gets back on the campaign trail tomorrow, but in the meantime, he has to be president of the united states. you mention the president will be campaigning again and have stops in wisconsin and vegas. all very key to winning the election. you have romney in florida today in tampa just the last hour. tel
, strategic, competitive, data-driven, they are both that. but romney has some of the other traits. he's very rank-oriented. if you read his book, "no apology," he wants america to be number one. he doesn't see a balance of power. he expresses less empathy, less empathy is linked with more testosterone, there's a lot of articles about that. so he seems the to express more of the testosterone in his system. as a matter of fact, his face is really quite high testosterone, the angular jaw, the heavy brow ridges, the high cheekbones are testosterone. so he's more testosterone. obama seems to be more expressive of the estrogen system, as well as testosterone. you know, there's a lot of football players, actually, who express a lot of estrogen as well as testosterone. and obama expresses a lot more of the estrogen. he's emotionally expressive, he sees the big picture, he's very contextual, holistic minded, got very good people skills, very good verbal skills, he's quite imaginative, these are all traits that are linked with the estrogen system. >> okay. >> you know, helen, i often think we spend to

about it. not so implicit knock against governor romney, who has made it clear, both in that convention speech, but in speeches prior to that convention speech, that he just doesn't buy the notion that mankind, humankind, is responsible in any way for the changes in climate that we've been experiencing. >> martin, can i make a quick point? >> please. >> just to be clear, something i said earlier. i wanted to get back to that, it is the case that fema, funding for fema, is not exempt from the automatic cuts or so-called sequestration. so if the sequestration does occur, these automatic cuts, $110 billion next year, that will hit fema as well. another good reason to try to make sure that doesn't happen. >> indeed. i believe we have ed markey with us at the moment. is that right, sir? oh, we don't. i'm so sorry. i was just told we did, but we don't. jared, going back to the economics of this and the fiscal cliff, how -- i mean, what happens now. because the president has already said that he wishes to have some kind of discussion as soon as possible about this matter. >> yeah. look, this i
